Katy Perry Wants to Write Hillary Clinton’s 2016 Campaign Song: When Katy Perry met former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on a press tour for Clinton’s latest memoir, Hard Choices, the international pop star wanted to offer her services to the rumored 2016 presidential candidate. “I told hillaryclinton [sic] that I would write her a “theme” song if she needs it…” Perry tweeted alongside a photo of the two. “@katyperry Well that’s not a Hard Choice. You already did! Keep letting us hear you Roar,” Clinton responded. [Cosmopolitan]

Dov Charney’s Termination Letter Leaked: After the founder of American Apparel, Dov Charney, was ousted last week, rumors immediately suggested the cause was his history of sexual harassment—had the Board finally had enough of his antics? As it turns out, there’s a whole lot more to the situation. According to Charney’s termination letter, which leaked on Sunday, the CEO misused company funds, discriminated against employees, and mishandled information pertaining to his sexual harassment lawsuits, among many other offenses.

Juicy Couture Is Closing All U.S. Stores: It’s the long overdue end of an era. The California-based brand that has outfitted everyone from the Jersey shore cast members to Malibu housewives (and almost every female on The O.C.) in terrycloth tracksuits during the early aughts is finally shutting its doors across the United States. Over 60 stores will remain open internationally, and its products will continue to be sold at large retailers. Meanwhile, the brand’s founders, Pamela Skaist-Levy and Gela Nash-Taylor, are in the works to launch a new, fresher label. [Huffington Post]
